of common ground. did you get any sense from him that he was looking to change the relationship with the united states? >> one thing i noticed by him, he's very humble. he's very humble, man. as a kid he's very humble. he's very -- he's very strong as a man, he's very strong but guess what, he don't want war. that's one thing he don't want. >> he said in the past he would destroy the united states. >> well, i just think that's coming from his father. i think as a young man, him -- he don't want anything -- >> what else does he know about the united states and president obama from what you could tell? >> i can tell by him, he does one thing, he loves -- he loves power. he loves control because others, you know, dad and stuff like that, but he's just a great guy. he's just a great guy. if you sit down and talk to him, you know, perception is perceiving how things work. >> a great guy who puts 200,000 people in prison camps. >> you know, guess what, it's amazing of how we do the same thing here. >> we have prison camps in the united states. >> we don't have prison camps, it's about

on a sustainable path. they're not today. and americans understand this. and the sooner we make changes to these programs, to put them on a sustainable path, the easier it will be to make those changes. >> let's move on to the republican party itself and the cpac conference this weekend. two potential presidential candidates. senator marco rubio and senator rand paul. had very different messages about the current state of the party. senator rubio said, we don't need any new ideas. the idea is called america and it still works. and here's what rand paul had to say. >> there is nothing conservative about bailing out wall street. our party is in encumbered by an inconsistent approach to freedom. the gop of old has grown stale and moss-covered. >> who's right? has it grown stale and moss-covered? >> listen, i think there's nothing wrong with the principles of our party. republicans have not done, as effective job as we should in terms of talking about our principles in terms average people can appreciate. why balancing the budget, would be good for the american family. we have to do a bette

, are you feeling that change among your supporters? >> there's change out there. no doubt about it. i think, by the way, this sounds naive, should be addressed in a nonpolitical way. i mean, my concerns is, changing an institution that quickly, just because you have six senators switching last week, polls reversing in eight, nine years, again, we have to look at the consequences of changing the institution. >> george, i want to talk about that first is, this issue is changing already. people developed this myth about 2004 that gay marriage had an effect. i was there. they had no effect on the ballot. this issue has been changing for a while. the argument to me, that this is an institution, a traditional institution for 2,000, 3,000 years, ignores the fact that the institution that, if you want to go to traditional marriage, it wasn't monogamous, women was property and they couldn't give consent. that was the traditional view of marriage for 2,000 years. marriage has evolved over the course of time. this is just another evolution. year sensitive to -- >> the decision is not evolving. >> same

thefts. voted down by republicans. >> peggy, maybe things haven't changed after newtown. >> here's what i think the problem is, i think congress is attempting to act in a way that ignores a central fact. the central fact is that nobody in america really trusts congress. if your congress and you admit that nobody really trusts us, you make simple, discreet, five-page bills, not these big comprehensive things that involve assault weapons, this and that, and putting forward and then having everybody, whoa, i'm not sure i trust you. the reason americans don't trust these big bills is because they think so much mischief is inside. >> i take your point on that. but that doesn't fit that bill as kind of simple? >> if we're at the point where that is a simple bill, on its own, existing on its own, i think it could go forward and do well as long as it does take care of certain things that may be going too far. >> senator reid think he can get through closure if he puts the background proposal up first. then couple it with gun safety measures, to keep our schools first and then perhaps, then open i

. there are other ways to cut. even i don't like the business about changing, you know, the price index for social security but that's not as bad -- >> the -- >> of all the things -- >> we'll let the senator go. >> to say the republicans haven't done anything is false. the house has actually passed budgets, you know, with proposals to try and save medicare, bipartisan proposals, quite honestly, the senate hasn't passed a budget in over four years. listen, unless we do something, these programs are going broke. it drives me nuts. when i hear people say social security is solvent till 2035, there will be $5.1 trillion more in benefits than they're bringing in people. >> george will's question. if the president went along with means testing, medicare beneficiaries more far reaching. you did a little already and adjusting consumer price index for social security recipients, would you as a senator be open to more revenues? >> listen, if you're taking a look at an entitlement reform package actually bringing in revenue for those entitlement reforms, i might look at that but the fact of the matter is, th
